Sextant Late Harvest Zinfandel 2010

Purchased from the Sextant Winery in San Louis Obispo, CA (around 24 dollars)

Aaron:  This is a great wine for Teri and me because it pairs my preference for full zin-bodied wines with her craving for sweetness.  That said, this featured more thick, creamy flavors than sugars (though white and brown sugar were certainly prominent).  The full jammy smell matched the flavor which was overwhelmed with prunes.  91 points

Teri: This late harvest will please those with the sweet tooth and those who crave the full bodied reds. As a zinfandel, it contains an abundance of warm dark fruits (plum and blackberry preserves) balanced with hints of brown sugar. Great for after dinner alone or to complement a dessert. 92 points
